Art on the Avenues offers 18 of the 88 public sculptures for purchase
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Adele Wolford (509) 669-2440 | (509) 663-9011
WENATCHEE – Not often do you get a chance to purchase a public sculpture and Art on the Avenues is making that opportunity possible.
“We are excited to have five new pieces in our collection,” said Adele Wolford, Art on the Avenues Board president. “These pieces are a wonderful addition to the public art in the Wenatchee Valley. These five pieces, along with 13 others are available for purchase.” To see the pieces available, visit http://artontheavenues.org/exhibit/#available-for-purchase.
The five new pieces include:
- Loving Embrace by Leo Osborne ($7,000)
- Resurrection by Steve Love ($18,700 – pictured)
- Big Bite by Ray Houston (SOLD)
- Go Figure by Tom McCelland ($1,200)
- Life’s a Ball by Joy Beckner ($10,800)
Anyone interested in purchasing a sculpture, either for their own personal collection or to dedicate it and have it maintained in a public location, can contact Art on the Avenues at email@example.com.
Every two years, Art on the Avenues rotates into the collection visiting art pieces from renowned sculptors from around the U.S. and the northwest in particular. In all, there are 88 total sculptures around the greater Wenatchee area that have been added since 1995. Many have been purchased – the City of Wenatchee has purchased 27 pieces, Art on the Avenues has purchased another 27 and six pieces are privately owned and available for viewing at one of the many public spaces dedicated to the sculpture installations. This is the last year that new sculptures will be rotating into the collection.
Change is in the wind…
The time has come for our bi-annual exhibit change. Several of the sculptures from our last exhibit are going home and new pieces are joining our fold.
Some of the permanent pieces will be moving around too.
The exhibit section of our website will be a bit thin, and the 2014-2016 brochure’s map will be just a bit off — that is until our new exhibit officially opens in June.
Thanks for your patience!
